Barn Yard Full of Sketches
Hi All! I've finally gotten back in the Studio to sketch and paint. I've been a bit obsessed with Barn Yard Animals:) I've always loved and admired Barn Yard Art- but was always too intimidated to try. So I decided to just jump in. I had a Blast:)
As you know I am in Love with my Scarlet Lime Roller Pen....can't live without it, am going to order them by the dozen this time! I am just obsessed with the Inky Goodness! Right now I'm not real confident in Acrylics yet- so I am trying really simple stuff.
This one is Acrylic background, then an Ink Sketch with a little bit of grey shading. Not too scary to try and I love the piggy!
This is "Jose the Rooster"...it's collage. I drew him out and then cut up the shape and added a little acrylic over the top. Outlined in Scarlet Lime Pen....still think I want to add some White in there- I would love any suggestions:)
Here's my first Sheep...it's actually the Face of my Doggie Bear. I tried to draw him and it turned out terrible...so this is Bear's expression in a Sheep Face:) It's Gesso swirled for texture, then Acrylic paint and Scarlet Lime Pen...I think I love him:)
I am hoping to make a whole Flock of Chickens:) Here is the sketch from a picture on a Calendar...
I was too nervous to try Acrylic yet so I decided to use Water Color Pencils- I just kept layering things up and then used a little water to blend. I feel like the Pencils really let you control where the color goes and I like the 'slow pace' of it- you can add a little at a time:)
This one I'm gonna keep as just Ink....dang I love that pen! I just sketched it out a bit with a cheap mechanical pencil and then...Scarlet Lime Pen Baby!
I am having a great time just Sketchin' away. I've been watching Psych Season 7 and old Columbo Episodes on Netflix while I'm working- it's been really fun- but now I am expecting someone to be Murdered every time I turn around...I think I need to switch to something other than Crime Shows...however silly:)
Well- that's the news that's news! I am hoping to be 'Deep in Sheep' this weekend:) We'll see what appears:)
Love to all!
